Nazar Simotiuk explores in his artworks the possibilities of traditional material - wood - in conceptual, technical, figurative aspects. The stylistic basis of his decorative reliefs were op-art, suprematism, abstract art, impressionism. With his work, he extends the modern concept of abstract plastics in wood, contrasts them with traditional canonization and shows a radically updated format.
I work with conceptual capabilities of painting, wooden plastic and visual optical capabilities. Op-art became a key direction and revealed a wide range of opportunities for the realization of creative ideas. In the process of creating sizable compositions, I combine the minimalism of simple geometric forms and a color contrast to enhance emotional perception in the viewer.Artworks are stored in private collections of the United States, Canada, UK, Japan, Italy, France, Brazil etc.
